The next day (26 Nov) Adrian is convinced that my big backpack will topple the motorcyle taxi over and since I can't take the water taxi, we have to walk about 10-12 minutes to the train station. I insist on carrying my big backpack cause well, it's ... Read more >

The next morning (25 Nov) it's still wet, but not raining. I decide I'm not eating prison food (aka dry, sticky toast) so we head out. We stop at a diner and Adrian orders a big breakfast and I steal a piece of "real" toast from him. I even get ... Read more >

The next morning (22 November) I woke up just before my alarm went off at 7am. I could hear a rooster crowing and for a moment it felt like I could have been in India. I got dressed, headed downstairs and grabbed a bite of breakfast. Soon a minivan ... Read more >

Technologically incompetent ninny goes to Chiang Mai

Sunday, 2 Dec 2012 | Views [479]

The next day after giving me transport options, it came down to either catch a boat to work or a motorbike taxi. Adrian seemed hesitant about letting me go on the motorcycle taxi, as you ride on the back without a helmet, but after my experience with ... Read more >

Goodbye Hong Kong, hello Thailand!

Wednesday, 28 Nov 2012 | Views [481] | Comments [1]

Tuesday, 20 November was a pretty quiet day I packed early in the day and went through a very frustrating conversation with my credit card company to get my credit card and cash situation in order. We then took my (still!) ginormous backpack to the ... Read more >
